Critical to the success of the Centers of Excellence in Nursing Education program are the consultants who make the onsite visit to each school seeking designation as an NLN Center of Excellence, the school itself, and the COE Committee.

These guidelines were adapted from the original guidelines
developed in 2004 to clearly define the roles, responsibilities,
and expectations of the consultant and school. It is particularly
critical to distinguish the Centers of Excellence program (and
the role of the consultant and school) from accreditation (and
the role of program evaluators and schools) since these
programs are very different from each other. Thus, these
guidelines clearly articulate what the Centers of Excellence
consultant and applicants are and are not expected to do
prior to, during, and after the onsite visit.

Any questions about the roles and responsibilities of anyone involved in the Centers of Excellence process should be directed to Tish Hess, NLN’s director, membership and excellence initiatives, at thess@nln.org.
